Two great stories from the UK showing the continuing growth of UKIP!

First, former Tory MP Rod Richards has become a new member of UKIP.  He states exactly and succinctly why every Briton should support UKIP as well:

He said it follows “10 years of frustration watching the country I love going down the pan and the parties in charge seemingly doing nothing about it”


“I found more and more I was complaining about it and not doing something about it,” he told BBC Radio Wales.

“I feel I have to get up and do something. I will give it my best shot.”

He said he believes the UK’s membership of the European Union (EU) was “holding us back” and was preventing the country trading with countries such as China and India.

He also claimed that as well as all the “red tape and restrictions”, the UK paid “far more into the EU than we receive” and that Welsh businesses were suffering.

Don’t complain!  British voters hereto have no excuse, just like US voters did in 2008 and 2012.  Ron Paul was on the ballot in every state in 2012.

And UKIP got its first London city councillor – ironically in the Richmond ward – when Scott Naylor defected to UKIP.  His explanation was simple, too:

Richmond councillor Scott Naylor, elected in 2010, said he was joining Ukip because it would best represent local people and promote reform to the European Union.

“I have decided that Ukip offers me the freedom to represent local people without feeling restrained in what I can say on local issues like the development of Twickenham station,” he said.

And yes I saw the poll:  It says that 1 in 5 Tory MEMBERS would consider voting for UKIP!  That is like 1 in 5 GOP ACTIVISTS saying they would support a third party in US.  And it might happen – if the GOP does not stand for the right.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
